Notice!! Our monthly meetings for 2007 have been cancelled, but we occasionally meet at
7:00 pm on the third Tuesday of each month. If you are
interested in contacting a club member or have any amateur radio
question, please use the e-mail address
below. Replace the 'at' of course.
The informal meeting that were held on the first Saturday of
every month 8:00 AM at the Kettle on 332 have also been discontinued.
We are working
with the new Brazoria County EC (Sarge, see the ARES link) to
rebuild the ARES capability. Contact Sarge if you want to
Here are the
frequencies of our repeaters:
2 meters: 147.380
/ 147.980 Tone 110.9
70 cm: 444.900 / 449.900 Tone 141.3
NOTE! Our 70
cm has been repaired and now has an HT range of about
17 miles and a mobile range up to 45 miles. We have had solid
signal reports from mobiles all the way to Pearland on the Northeast
and to Needville to the Northwest. The 70 cm repeater is normally
linked to the 2m repeater.
Our 2 meter
repeater is operational but currently has limited range due to
antenna issues. A replacement antenna has been acquired and will
swapped at the next available tower climb in 2006.
